TRANSFER OF VEHICLE OWNERSHIP

The registered owner of the vehicle must complete and sign a Declaration of Transfer Form in the presence of an officer of the Licencing Authority. The transferee if possible, should also be present and to sign. The officer witnessing the signing will sign the form and advise the new owner of the next steps in the process, which are, (1) obtaining insurance for the vehicle under the new owner’s name and (2) the payment of transfer and licencing fees, if any, at the Inland Revenue Department.

If the registered owner elects to keep the vehicle registration number, then a registration form will be issued to, and completed by the new owner, and a new number is assigned to the vehicle.

If the registered owner is not on the island or cannot present themselves to the Licencing Authority, then a notorised letter addressed to the Traffic Department must be sent, indicating the owner’s intention, along with a description of the vehicle including manufacturer and model name, engine and chassis number, manufacture year and colour.

If the registered owner is deceased, then the individual who has lawful possession of the vehicle, must present an affidavit filed in the court, indicating their entitlement to ownership of the vehicle. A copy of the affidavit will be kept at the Licencing Authority and the original will be stamped, endorsed and sent to Inland Revenue Department to effect the change.
